    Our waiter Jacob, really brought the whole experience together. Since it was our first time here, I did find the menu a tad hard to follow. Jacob explained everything, gave us his recommendations on what pairs best with what and gave us great tips on how to best enjoy the meal. He was always there right when things needed to be taken care of but never hovered, creating an absolute perfect experience that I don't think we would have had if left to our own inexperienced decisions.
    Ryan, our server, was professional, courteous and very attentive but not intrusive. The owners dropped by to check on us and were very welcoming. My wife and I had eaten at the restaurant about a year ago and found the same friendliness, service and consistency from the owners and staff. We will definitely visit again!
    Staff was friendly and perfect
    Myself along with my family typically visit a Melting Pot restaurant an average of 2-4 times per year and have always had excellent experiences. On our Feb. 13 we brought along family friends who had never been to a Melting Pot and was very excited about it since we had been talking about how great the food and service is, unfortunately on this visit that was not the case. 1. Waited forever to have our oder taken, although the waitress passed back by our table multiple times. When we would ask her to take our order she would mumble something we could not understand and walk off only to come back by 5-10 minutes later. 2. When the cheese course was brought out the waitress brought the wrong cheese which delayed starting our meal even much longer. 3. When the main course came the waitress stated she would be right back with the dipping spoon, since she had not brought it with the meal. Since we had 3 children, ages 5 - 8, at the table we asked if she could bring it back ASAP as we would need it. After waiting ~5-7 minutes and no spoon we stopped the hostess as she was walking by and asked to speak to a manager. Well, the manager never showed up and one of our party had to go hunt down the waitress to get the rescue spoon delivered to our table. 4. At one point when the waitress did come by our table we asked for several drink refills to which she stated she would be right back with that. Unfortunately it was the same issue as with the dipping spoon. When the drinks never came back we again asked the hostess to have the manager come by so we could speak to them but they never showed up. So again, we had to hunt down the waitress to bring our drinks as by this time all 3 kids had run out of drink. 5. We actually paid extra to have the double servings of chocolate for the desert. When the pots came out not only was there not double portions of chocolate but it was actually less than what we would normally get with just a single order. 6. On top of this there was an automatic 20% tip that was added to our bill which we had to pay for extremely poor service. As stated above, we visit various Melting Pot restaurants, including Destin, across the gulf coast states and have always had exceptional service and although the food was very good as always, due to service and lack of correct amounts of food, this visit was a waste of our time and money. Including a hugh disappointment for our friends who was visiting a Melting Pot for the very first time.
    Our waitress Bethany was very quick on her feet. Each time we were done with a course she would have another one coming making sure we weren’t sitting around waiting. She held conversations with us but wasn’t too chatty.
    Erin was really friendly, funny and provided an excellent level of service. At the end of the night, I was asking her about the structure of the Melting Pot (I was curious, I used to work in food service) and we were surprised to find out that she had 5 other tables. With the amount of attention she gave us, we never would have guessed she was so busy! She did a really great job.
    Everything I listed in the previous page covers this area as well. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
